Yeah already edited my post lol, thanks anyway mate!.
Can anyone confirm if these help Borderlands 2 at all?
Probably not. Adds 650 TI support. Release notes are here - http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/306.97/306.97-win8-win7-winvista-desktop-release-notes.pdf
Changes and Fixed Issues in Version 306.97
The following sections list the important changes and the most common issues resolved

What issues do you have? I'm also playing Borderlands 2 and have none except somewhat low FPS when PhysX is on High and there is a lot of blasting going around.
Nice to have official drivers for my cards and certified ones at that but I've only just installed the 306.89 ones the day before last. These don't look terribly exciting in terms of fixes and improvements but I always install the latest drivers out so I'll be installing these as soon as I get home in an hour.
I also noticed with the 306.63 and 306.89 drivers that those Chinese symbols that show when you export the profiles as a text file have now been replaced by English. I believe these are part of the 3D profiles.
Is there a problem with borderlands 2? It runs pretty well for me (tried 306.02 and 306.89)
Low fps (down as far as mid 30's) in certain areas whether Physx is low/medium/high. GPU usage hits max and CPU utilization drops in half during these times.
I've encountered the odd rare stutter with Borderlands 2 on maxed out settings, 1920x1200 and High PhysX but otherwise the game runs smoothly at a constant 60 fps. I presume these 'hiccups' are caused by PhysX as I've yet to play a single game that uses hardware PhysX that doesn't have this issue at some point. IMO, PhysX, even after all this time, is still very poorly optimised.
Anyone else having the idle clocks bug with this driver? Mine is stuck at 3D clocks (732 instead of 135)
Did a clean installation w/ restart. Reverted back to 306.06, all fine again.
New branch starts promising...
are you forcing AA through control panel/nvidia inspector?
Im getting 60 fps with very occasional dips (probably physx) but im using the ingame fxaa.
All settings on High, except Physx Low.
No, I am only using in-game options, everything set to max. Game runs fine the majority of the time, but at random times when certain enemies or other objects come into play my FPS takes a nosedive. I can have a dozen enemy firefight and maintain 60fps but after it's over and I turn around to look at the other side of a room I can slip down to mid 40's. Nothing is really going on but GPU usage goes way up and CPU goes down.
Any performance improvements in BF3 or any other newer game except BL2?
For some reason with these and the Quadro/Tesla 306.79 my max boost has been lowered from 1228 to 1215. Overclock settings haven't change, and reverting back to older drivers cures the issue. Since this isn't a big deal to me I will stick with these for now.
Powerdirector hardware acceleration is still broken with these.. god dangit.. -.-
Havn't tryed any games yet so cant comment on that.
Why Nvidia even bothered releasing 306.89 yesterday? 306.97 drivers add support for 650Ti cards too.
Errrrrrrrr.. that's an issue, when you have a GTX 680 or 2 and a large CPU to back them up
Seem like very solid drivers, i'm gonna keep em', i do notice a reduced IQ from the tesla ones but whatever, i just ran the Arkham City benchmark and got a very clean result from these.
no fps change in bf3.....has any1 noticed reduced boost clock
Im still getting low GPU usage with these drivers. it makes the game stutter alot! -.-
